Big Lots has opened a new store in Northeast El Paso, but also has closed two others.

The Big Lots chain recently opened its newest El Paso store in the new North Hills Crossing shopping center at Martin Luther King Boulevard and U.S. 54. It is now an easier location to get to and all brand new building. The Big Lots chain also closed an older store at 9801 Gateway West and McRae Boulevard in East El Paso.

The new, larger store replaces the Big Lots at 8500 Dyer in Northeast El Paso. A company official for Big Lots says that the new location is for the better.

There are now four stores in El Paso and one in Las Cruces.
